On account of technical difficulties, many students who appeared in online AIEEE test in Chennai , faced lots of problems . The test was held in five private engineering colleges & also on the TCS company premises in Ambattur.
Students who took the test at the TCS centre, did not go through any difficulty . A parent namely R. Krishna Dev expressed grievance about the long distance of examination centre as it was instructed to be present there by 8-30 A.M. “They should have tested the hardware before the test,” he said.
Candidates in S.R.R Engineering college also went through the same problem. Some students said that they were given instruction about not to use the keyboard during the test to check malfunction. This was another problem for which many students suffered a lot . Moreover the systems have some problems in them. This also wasted a considerable amount of time of students.
Around 2,545 students from the city appeared in the online test here . The other dates of this test are May 17 & May 26.
